Abstract (Document Summary)

"Athens is just the next step for this growing sport," said [Hans Mayrhofer], who won the overall Ein Gedi competition by about six minutes, and topped 22 of 23 races worldwide last year. "I came in third in Holland. A race is a race and you can't win them all. But I do want to see more people from the US where handcycling is trying to gain popularity."
